Culture in Brief: Aging in Place films
Aging in Montclair and bevival.com present the East Coast debut of San Diego’s festival “Celebrating Aging In Film.”
Curated and moderated by Mario Garrett, Ph.D., series founder, aging expert and author, this three-day weekend, Oct. 20-22, is intended to shed light on how the aging narrative is transforming our culture.
The series kicks off Friday afternoon at 2 with “UP,” Pixar’s award-winning story. “Cherry Blossoms” and “Iris” will screen on Saturday. Friday and Saturday screenings are at the new Presentation Hall in the School of Communication and Media at Montclair State University.
On Sunday, the closing film, “The World’s Fastest Indian,” will screen in Leir Hall at the Montclair Art Museum. Ticket holders are encouraged to arrive early to meet members of the NJ Indian Motorcycle Club outside the museum, take a tour of the Native American exhibit in the Rand Gallery, and enjoy light refreshments.
